Abstract: In recent years, fantasy sports have received a substantial amount of legislative attention within states. Many states have passed laws that allow for fantasy sports while others have remained inhibitory towards the practice. Interestingly, the major websites in this industry such as FanDuel, Draftkings, Yahoo, iTeam and Fantasy Aces are banned in some states but not in others. In this article, we explore the specific factors that have contributed to states adopting fantasy sports gambling-enabling legislation. We look at factors within states, external factors using a policy diffusion framework, and tertiary factors such as campaign contributions by fantasy sports gambling organizations to explain state legislative activity. Initial findings suggest that all of the aforementioned exhibit an influence.

Abstract: The fantasy sport industry has grown rapidly in the past decade, now boasting 56 million participants in North America alone. More recently, the ascent of fantasy sport appears directly attributable to the rise of new websites offering daily/weekly fantasy games. This study surveys 438 fantasy participants—some who play traditional fantasy sports but not daily, others who participate in daily fantasy sports (DFS). Results reveal that motivations for play do not differ between traditional and daily participants, yet the two sets of respondents differed in terms of media consumption, economic commitment, and perceptions of games being skill vs. chance-based. Ramifications of these differing trends are offered, with implications on the applied and theoretical levels.

Abstract: This essay investigates how fantasy baseball participation sutures Major League Baseball fandom to new media technologies thereby creating a context for baseball that helps to relieve and rearticulate the harsh memories of the game’s present and recent past. In so doing, this essay demonstrates fantasy baseball’s implication in larger theoretical investigations such as the role of nostalgia in popular memory, as well as the ways that media technologies can function as equipment for living.

Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: Techno-fantasies of post-humanity have been frequently and appropriately criticized for overestimating what technologies are possible or probable, that is criticized as predictions. This needs to be supplemented with a criticism of them as fantasies, as stories that make implicit truth claims about who we are and what we want which stand independent of the particular assertions about what we actually have the resources to do. I will make such a critique by comparing the popular and typical techno-fantasy put forth by Ray Kurzweil in Age of the Spiritual Machines with the fantasy of a heavenly afterlife and then contrast both with how people have actually behaved in the virtual world of Second Life, which offers comparable material freedom. I will show that Kurzweil’s fantasy has an impoverished conception of what it is to be human, and by extension, post-human.
